Ingredients

  • 500 ml (2 cups) 35% cream
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) maple syrup
  • 5 ml (1 teaspoon) all-purpose flour
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) grated maple sugar

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 °C (350 °F)
  2. In a saucepan, heat the cream over low heat until steaming;
  3. In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the maple syrup and stir in the flour;
  4. Pour the hot cream over the egg yolk mixture while stirring constantly;
  5. Put the mixture back in the saucepan and heat over low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until thickened enough to coat the back of the spoon;
  6. Fill medium sized ramekins or cups with the preparation to 3/4 full;
  7. Place in a baking dish filled with water, halfway up the ramekins. Bake in the center of the oven for 30 minutes or until creams are firm;
  8. Remove the ramekins from water and allow to cool to room temperature before refrigerating;
  9. When the creams are cool, sprinkle each with 15 mL (1 tablespoon) maple sugar. Caramelize the sugar with the torch or few minutes in the oven on broil;
  10. When the creams are cool, sprinkle each with 15 mL (1 tablespoon) maple sugar. Caramelize the sugar with the torch or few minutes in the oven on broil;

Additional Information

It is important to cool the crème brulée before caramelizing sugar in the oven. If, however, the torch is used, caramelization of the sugar can be done as soon as the creams are out of the oven.
